The standard of healthcare in Nigeria is, unfortunately, is not up to international standards, and Lagos is no exception. Public healthcare facilities in Lagos are underfunded, understaffed and underequipped. Although private healthcare facilities offer a better standard of care, the quality of facilities varies.

Expats requiring serious medical treatment are likely to require air evacuation to a country with better facilities. As such, comprehensive medical insurance, which makes provisions for international medical evacuation, is advised for all expats living in Lagos.

Below is a list of the more popular private hospitals in Lagos for expats.
